Wendy Stronge

My name is Wendy Stronge and I am originally from Northern Ireland. I spent a year at UNCG in 2011 studying for a degree in anthropology and found it to be an extremely rewarding and challenging experience. The style of teaching at UNCG is excellent, and my professors were both encouraging and stimulating. The range of courses available allowed me to pursue my particular interests in medical anthropology. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA.

After completion of my degree at UNCG, I moved back to the UK to pursue a Masters degree in Medical Anthropology at University College London (UCL). This involved writing my dissertation on citizenship and activism around HIV/AIDS in South Africa. I graduated with Merit.

Following my year at UCL, I returned to my home in Northern Ireland where I completed a year-long research studentship in association with Queen’s University Belfast and the Royal Victoria Hospital, gathering data on the incidence of second malignancy in patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs). This research has resulted in several published abstracts and enabled my travelling to an international conference in Japan where I presented a poster. One full peer-review paper has been published in the Annals of Clinical Science, and a second is presently ready for publication.

In 2014, I gained a place at Aberdeen Medical School in Scotland, where I am now entering my third year.
